Try Out New Resources

Check out our database trials page to gain access to some amazing trials this month.  Whether you’re researching business and company information, historical topics, sociological trends, images for a project, or biological sciences, you will find something to love in trials from Mergent, Britannica, Proquest, Alexander Street, and EBSCO.  All trials require a Samford username and password.  You should be able to access these from anywhere that you have an Internet connection.
These trials are courtesy of the University Library’s continuing relationship with other academic libraries in the state via theNetwork of Alabama Academic Libraries.  This statewide organization allows us to leverage our numbers in the acquisition of many of our online databases.  We are grateful to NAAL for its support year round and especially during this month of trials.  Another set of trials will be available in October.
If you have feedback about these trial resources, please send your comments to Lori Northrup at lanorthr@samford.edu .  Helpful information from you includes answers to some of the following:
Is this database useful to you in your own research?
Would it be useful and promoted by you to your students?
Did you find the interface easy to use?
What did you expect to find in this resource that you are not finding?
Would you like to see a webinar about this trial resource?
